Make It Monday #123 with Milk Coffee

I am so excited to introduce our new sponsor this week, Milk Coffee, and the beautiful image Fairy Tiffany I was given to play with. Honestly, you have to see it in person to take in all of the detail. It's stunning! This card was not planned out and came together step by step. I colored my image first with Copic's and chose a glittered dp from a 12x12 paper pack by MME which I've had for a while now. As some of you know I am on a quest to use my current paper up before purchasing more. So far so good but not too sure how long I can hold out lol. I have another goal but I'll share more on that in a minute. Here's a close up of this beautiful fairy and her sparkly wings.
I used matte gel medium to adhere the glitter to the inside of each wing and it worked like a charm.  The sentiment from Verve's Birthday Surprise set was stamped onto a Spellbinders Lattice Pendant and Pink Flamingo liquid pearls were used to highlight it. A few paper flowers and hot pink pearls complete the embellishments for this birthday card.
Prize: 3 fabulous digi's of winner's choice!
Ok, time to share with all of you what my next goal this year is. I decided to accept a challenge that My Creative Classroom founder, Jeri Parks, issued at the turn of the new year. She's on a personal quest to use all of her unmounted stamps in a year and to make it official she started a blog, Use Every Stamp 2013 to keep her on track.
Attend the Class & Take the Challenge
It officially kicks off tomorrow, January 14th, so you have time to check it out.  You will be asked to count all of your unmounted stamps and you might be as surprised as I was to see how many you've collected through the years. I'm a realist and honestly there is no way I can use every single stamp this year which is why it's great that she allows you to set your own goal. I will announce how many sets I have and my own personal goal on Monday along with a card or project to officially kick it off. If you're interested in using the stamps you already own that may have been sitting there collecting dust then I hope you'll join me. It will be fun and rewarding!
Thanks for stopping by today and please pay my teamies a visit and see their amazing creations. You can click their links on my right sidebar or visit the MIM challenge blog.
Hugs & Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

I was moving like a slug this weekend and didn't get over here sooner, but I have to tell you L1, I love the way that you encased that sentiment. That is really classy and your floral arrangement and layout bring that darling fairy to life perfectly. Job well done on this MIM card.
